Is it time for Modern Family to say goodbye? Recently, creators Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the future of the ABC TV show.
The long-running comedy is currently in its ninth season and stars Ed O’Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Jeremy Maguire.
Modern Family is about to celebrate its 200th episode, but how much longer will the show be on for? Levitan confirmed that ABC has ordered a 10th season, which is planned to be the last for the family comedy:
“Our plan is to end it at 10. If we can leave with most of our audience wanting more, I think that’s the right way to do it. Never say never, but I just can’t imagine that we’d go past that.”
The 200th episode of Modern Family airs on ABC tonight, January 10th, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
What do you think? Do you watch Modern Family? How many more seasons would you like?
For real, I haven’t watched this show in 3-4 years. It’s just so one-note and all the characters are stereotypes that have nothing added to them to make their characters unique.
This show is suffering from the same fate as other long running ensemble sitcoms, the writers and show runners run out of ideas for the characters to do so they become stale. Thus the show runs out of steam and
I think this show has had its run…and done !
It’s time to end it!
Yes it sadly should come to an end. With the four original children all of college age there just isn’t anywhere to go in terms of their adding more families. It just becomes more unmanageable and not funny. Have enjoyed the show but it is time to say goodbye.
Yep ..is manny (can’t think of his name st the tool of my head he liked not Alex the other one) still on modern family or no?
Manny (Rico Rodriguez) is in college this year and Luke (Nolan Gould) is taking a year off working at a country club. Haley (Sarah Hyland) has not been on as much lately, but I think that is because the actress has health issues with her kidney.
Time to go, for sure.
It’s about time
